We knew it was coming, didn’t we?
After every tragic act of violence with the use of a gun, Democrats run to the microphone to blast the NRA and demand gun control.
Hillary immediately tweeted today, “We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA.”
The obvious contradiction of that statement aside, banning guns obviously won’t stop attempts of massacre.
See vehicles, knives, and acid used in Europe this year at the hands of ISIS agents.
Not to be outdone, Sen. Elizbeth Warren tweeted, “We need to have the conversation about how to stop gun violence. We need it NOW.”
Um, pardon us for saying so, but we’ve had the conversation already.
Gun violence is lowest in those communities where legal carry laws are the most relaxed.
Imagine a scenario in which half a dozen Vegas concert-goers return fire.
The outcome would likely have been far less heinous.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
Congressional Democrats chose not to wait for all the facts to come in before immediately pushing for increased gun control measures following the Las Vegas shooting Sunday night that left 50 people dead and more than 400 injured.
It’s not yet clear how the shooter, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, acquired his guns or if gun control measures could have prevented him from obtaining them, but leading Democrats are already demanding stricter gun control legislation.
Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy issued a statement Monday morning claiming that “the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference.” Murphy demanded Congress “get off its ass and do something” following the shooting.
“Tragedies like Las Vegas have happened too many times,” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote on Twitter. “We need to have the conversation about how to stop gun violence. We need it NOW.”
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attacked the National Rifle Association (NRA).
“Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again,” Clinton wrote.
